“What if we were real? We’d think a little less of ourselves. We’d care about someone else. Maybe we could let someone love us. Maybe we’d be a little more like Jesus.” ~Mandisa

Check it out: Click Here! Mandisa – What If We Were Real (Neva Remix/Lyric Video)

I’ve been listening to “What
If We Were Real?” It is a powerful song by Mandisa. It inspires us to take off our masks and be real in a world where so much is fake.

Our Scripture for Sunday from Luke 11: 33-36 aligns with the song. It reminds us that we don’t light a lamp to hide it. To be real is to take off our masks and to light the world around us through the light that is within us. In a world desperate for love, we have the opportunity to show real love every day.

Sunday’s contemporary reading by Iyanla Vanzant echoes Luke: “You will know love when you realize you cannot hide what you think, what you feel or who you are. You are not present in love if you are afraid to tell the absolute truth about who you are, what you need and what you want. Love does not hide!”

Today is the day to move out of the shadows of fear into the fullness God holds for each of us. Every day we can look in the mirror and see love looking back. Each day we can turn the page, releasing the past once we learn from it. When we’re free, we’re more available to serve others.
Sunday, we’ll talk to each other and to God about throwing away our masks and fully embracing love and truth. When we take off our masks, love is revealed.

“Love rises tall in the truth of what it is for everyone to see and receive it.” ~Iyanla Vanzant

Intercessory Prayer Team, “PRAY FIRST” for the New Year! Join us as we endeavor to start off 2020 in prayer!


The Intercessory Prayer Team invites the congregation to “PRAY FIRST” for the New Year! Join us as we endeavor to start off 2020 in prayer by praying first in these five areas:
• Before getting out of bed
• Before driving or taking the metro/bus
• Before saying offensive or derogatory words
• Before making impulsive or important decisions
• Before going to sleep
We believe this will make a difference in our year and draw us closer to God and take us into the Lent season.
You can join us at intercessory prayer on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month in the Chapel. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Jules at
